Storyline

Two mutant brothers, Logan and Victor, born 200 years ago, suffer childhood trauma and have only each other to depend on. Basically, they're fighters and killers, living from war to war through U.S. history. In modern times, a U.S. colonel, Stryker, recruits them and other mutants as commandos. Logan quits and becomes a logger, falling in love with a local teacher. When Logan refuses to rejoin Stryker's crew, the colonel sends the murderous Victor. Logan now wants revenge.

Goofs

Kayla tells Logan the story of a wolverine howling at the moon. Wolverine vocal cords are unable to make a howling sound. But cultural stories are not always scientifically accurate, especially if they are a way for a culture to explain something in nature. See more »

If your not a comic book reader on an ego trip~YOU'LL LOVE THIS MOVIE!
3 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie cost 150 million to make and that was obvious.

I Loved the whole movie the last third I was completely caught up in it! Hugh Jackman was outstanding as well as the rest of the cast.

It's Very entertaining....isn't that why you go to see a movie! The people saying negative things about this movie are like people who design roll coasters...and claim it was not good enough after they rode it!!!

Anyone else...a normal person who is relaxing and trying to enjoy the ride will be COMPLETELY HAPPY!

It seems a lot of people posting on here are strictly all about spouting their knowledge of comics....

Please...Your Not the person who wrote this....lighten up....your a nobody trying to be a somebody by attacking this movie!

******Go SEE this movie it's worth the 8 bucks!!!!
